Although Ernie Whitt is technically an American citizen, he’s still probably about as Canadian as poutine with a side of bag of ketchup chips. I’m not sure if Ernie is still pissed at Blue Jays management or not, but I imagine he will be in good spirits at the induction ceremony. He deserves a lot of credit, and has contributed a lot to Canadian baseball through the Blue Jays, and also by coaching team Canada at the World Baseball Classic.
The induction ceremony will be held on June 20th at 11:00am in St. Mary’s. Surprisingly, I still haven’t been to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, but will probably try to take a visit there sometime this summer to check it out. Though, I’m finding it difficult to find more than two good reasons to take a trip to St. Mary’s other than to see the hall of fame, and stock up on Crystal Meth.
Road trip, anyone?
